MASON CITY, Iowa — A Clear Lake man has given Cerro Gordo County 25 acres of land for use as a wildlife area.
The county accepted the donation Tuesday.
County conservation director Fred Heinz said the land was “a ready-made, good-to-go wildlife area.” It includes restored prairie, trees and shrubs and has a creek.
Clear Lake resident Charles Walker donated the land, which is northeast of Clear Lake in Lincoln Township.
Heinz said the land is for public enjoyment with no restrictions. He called it, “Charles Walker's gesture of good will for perpetuity.”
